A 92 yr old will get worse but also plenty of 18-24 yr olds won't get any better.

My brothers and I were all bought up on a farm, I was driving a mini and an escort around the farm at 12 and both my brothers even earlier.
One of my brothers was ploughing at 13.
We all passed first time at 17 as we'd been driving for years.

If young people had the chance to learn at a younger age off road they would definitely be better once they were legal.
Unfortunately most teenagers will never get that chance.

My father taught me to drive on our Caravan site and I thought I would pass my test first time.

But I'm ashamed to admit it took me 4 attempts to pass as I had picked up many bad habits. But now I am a pretty good driver, well at least my children think so.

Now Parking....well that's a different matter

I've never had a problem parking and can reverse park really well and quickly but most women would rather go in front ways than back in which is the way you should do it.

Bit of a generalisation I find it much easier to park backways than front

I'm always scared I'm going to scrape the side of the other car as I turn out. I can't seem to judge that you have slightly more room than you think.

My Audi however does have parking sensors so I have no excuses now.

I'm a firm believer in going forward into parking spaces, its so much easier to reverse out of a space than into one

It isn't really, when you reverse in you only really have to worry about the other parked cars near you, when you reverse out, you're reversing into where other moving cars/people are as well as the parked cars near you

Yeah but you're reversing out into wide open space, you've got to be aware but you're not having to judge the angle as strictly and everything

Whenever I had to park, I always made sure there were no cars anywhere nearby.
Supermarket parking was the easiest, drive straight through one space into the one in front, easier to get out, made it harder to pack the shopping away if some idiot parked too close behind mind.

Ah the joys of driving, pretty pleased I dont/ can't anymore.
As to older drivers, your response time slows down as you get older, mabe that's why they drive slower
